I had been dreaming about designing my own backpack for years and in the winter of 2016, I decided that it was time for action. The idea was to create a pack that would cater to all my needs, be durable enough, and only have a minimal environmental footprint. After having travelled to nearly all the continents and worked in the bag industry for over a decade it was time to pursue this dream and bring my vision of the best adventure camera bag to life.
THE FJORD 36 WAS BORN
With the invaluable help of longtime friend Mario, my wife Catarina and several early-day prototype testers, the team was put in place to finalize the designs and prepare for our launch on Kickstarter. In November 2017 we got funded and NYA-EVO was a reality.
We make camera packs for adventurers, explorers and creators. Our products are designed to give you freedom. Freedom to trust that your gear will be safe so you can focus on the important things like getting that once in a lifetime polar bear shot or catching the sunrise over the Japanese Alps. We want to give you the freedom to go that extra mile, to head out into the wild and get to that ridge line to see what is on the other side. NYA-EVO is designed to help you Go Further.
Everyday we are amazed by how this extraordinary group of people came together to work on something special and make NYA-EVO what it is today, and more importantly, what it will be tomorrow.
